Hi there.

Looks like we need to check the things that could cause the engine to start and then die, such as ASD relay, IAC position, injector on-time and ignition. Do you have access to a DRB-III or equivalent scan tool that can read sensor data and also actuate the idle control motor?

IAC new also, scan tool be hear in morning
Expert:  Juan Crespo replied 1 month ago.

Good, the scan tool will allow us to see what's happening with all those new parts. By the way, I'm online week days from 2 to 8 PM Eastern Time. Please let me know if you're OK with waiting that long or you rather have me opt out and re-open your question to other experts...
